He was killed near some houses from what I heard so it wasn't a terrible drag.

jigman, the story I got from a DNR ranger today was that he keeps bees, and was going out to check the hives and took his crossbow with him. Is that about right?

You know how the grapevine works man! The article mentioned he had seen the bear several times. My judgement leads me to believe this is how he had seen the bear several times. Who knows though. It'll probably take a thorough write-up by the interview from GON or Georgia Sportsman to properly dissiminate any details of any are released at all. The DNR guy said it was up by the Jewish camp, and one guy from Rabun Co told me today it was right behind the flea market, and that they towed the bear with a Tacoma. Haha! It's always amusing to see what kinds of stories get formulated out of events such as these. Always is a guessing game and makes for entertaining speculations and reads!

It was pulled by the toyota truck that it was pictured in, I know the guy that owns it and he was the one that told me about the bee hives just like Killer Kyle heard.. He was also personally there and helped get it out.

Great bear. But I wish there were some nice pics of it, certianly would be maybe a little softer for the non hunters. But again what a beast. Congrats to the hunter.

You don't see bears of that size in the same spot regularly unless there is a massive food source.

I love that he shot it with a crossbow.
